Something similar happened to me last year. Two of our science teachers retired, one of which was the dept head. She taught chemistry. I became a teacher because I wanted to teach chemistry.

So Iím 4 months pregnant with my first baby. I need advice on the best maternity clothes for teaching. I will be on my feet a lot and I quickly found out last night at open house that my current...

Wow! Iíve never thought about how copies were made before actual copying machines. I have such a tremendous respect for you veterans.

Iíll admit that I have no idea what a ditto machine is.

Well for us at the high school, we didnít have much technology to begin with. We arenít 1:1. We donít have smart boards. The only...

I believe we can use the old times projectors. Itís just that we canít use any of the modern ones. (I donít know if they can be used w/o a computer or not, but we were told not to even try.)

No technology

How many of us on proteacher could teach with NO technology?

This is the situation my entire school system is in. We had a ďmalwareĒ attack two weeks ago and are still without any technology and...

Think the main point is that whatever you wear, it needs to be appropriate. I wear jeans and colored pants every day of the week with a cute top. So some may not consider that professional. But...

I agree

With AlwaysSummer. As teachers, we are always treated as the least professional of the professional world and I canít help but think itís for reasons like this.

And even though the post says it...

No choice

Some teachers have no choice. I teach high school and most new teachers at my school get ďvoluntoldĒ to do an extracurricular activity.

They arenít asked what they might be interested in. You are...

Final Exams

How does your high school do final exams?

And what do other high school teachers do at the end of the school year? Like when is the last day you stop teaching.

Are you required to give a...

Because not everyone is good at standardized exams (me). Most, like the ACT, have very little to do with what you actually learn in your classes in high school. Especially the science, which upsets...

Oh my gosh! I could not imagine doing that. We still change classes but we turn the bells off so the teacher has to dismiss the students when the bell would normally ring. And usually the students...

I am so sick and tired of hearing my students say, ďI donít know how to...Ē or ďI donít understand...Ē when I just spent 15 or 20 minutes teaching the skill. They take notes, I model it, then I...

I agree.

I worry about this more than I should. I, too, believe that especially in public school, we contribute to this growing problem among our students who eventually go out into society and expect it to...

I understand.

I have a student right now in my general ed classroom that is similar. Since day one, he has put forth little to no effort in my class. He acts like he canít do anything but I know he can do more...

We might

Work at the same school because this is an almost daily request from my students. No joke but on any given day there are probably at least 2 or 3 classes in the gym.

If any our coaches donít feel...

I donít understand why some men principals do that either. They have to know that other people notice what is going on.

Last year, a new teacher got hired who is absolutely gorgeous. I would say...

Mine was awful. I hated most of it except the students. I cried to parents halfway through saying that I wanted to quit and major in something else. They wouldnít let me.
